“Good location, fantastic”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 16, 2013

We stayed here for 3 nights in Xiamen. The hotel is very cozy, and during check in we were being upgrade to the indigo special view room. We like the colorful design in the room, and the toilet is automatically. The staff speaks good English in the lobby. The hotel location is in the CBD area and within walking distance to the boat ferry. The breakfast is very good. I like the lovely hotel.

Room Tip: If you like bath, you can choose the indigo special view room or city view room.

Really love this hotel . Lobby is a little small but very well designed, and brings me a kind of bright and refreshing style. Check-in service is very fast and the attitude is nice too.

Guest room is so beautiful that I cannot move my eyes since I enter in. Wall painting, tea set, bookrack, even a tissue box is very delicate. The sea view from the room is one of the best scenery I ever seen and it can take the panorama of Gulangyu Island in a glance. Furthermore, the closestool is automatic; it surprised my son and makes him very excited.

The restaurant is also amazing. Food is delicious, and service is good too. Some local foods are my first time to eat, and the flavour is quite impressive.

Excellent hotel! I will definitely choose it when I come to Xiamen again!

I have spent much time in hotels in all continents, and Hotel Indigo in Xiamen ranks among the best. Their attitude, attention to quality details and the total experience is well worth the visit.

As you enter the modern hotel entry, you arwe welcomed by lobby hosts. They have thrown away receptionists, and hosts seem to have had an energizing effect, because this attitude follows you during the entire stay. The attentiveness wherever you go is discreet and courteous. The staff seem to enjoy their job, and the cooperation at work as well.

The rooms are worth the stay on their own. Fine details in the corner of the shower and toilet are found from the old traditional buildings in Xiamen, and are from that perspective promoting the culture of the region. The same applies to numerous paintings and pictures in the rooms, corridors and restaurant. An excellent idea which the hotel could promote stronger and give more background for in their introduction book in the rooms.

The walk in shower which gives two kind of rain shower effects is among the best hotel showers I have seen. Delicate stone walls and floor accentuate the feeling of a high class hotel. The flat screen TV elevates into the work desk, and the near wall to wall windows give the feeling of sitting with a birds view of the beatiful harbour overlooking the Gulangyu island.

It is impressive that the hotel is able to maintain such a standard considering the relatively small number of rooms. Thanks heaven for hotels like this, - they make you feel at home when you are travelling.

Small detail for improvement: The card reader in the elevator needs adjustment, - you have to know the trick to get a quick response when you want to register which floor to go to. Strangely enough the card reader for the room works very well.

Room Tip: Harbour view recommended. Use the hotel restaurant. This restaurant is reasonably priced and has an...

Hotel Indigo is the best at consistent cool.
They are all the same but different.
Best moods in a hotel chain ever.
When you visit one, you cannot wait to visit the next n anticipation of what you will experience.
Rooms are funky, amenities in the rooms are reliable and well laid out.
Focus on local things to do and experience.

Stayed two nights there for a trip and was really impressed by the sea view.

Plus:
+ fantastic view that overlooks the picturesque Gulangyu Islet and sea/harbour
+ contemporary and cozy decoration with local touch
+ walking distance to harbour and Zhongshan Lu
+ free parking
+ boutique-style hotel - less guests and relaxing ambiance

Minus:
- sub-par room service for 5-star hotels with service surcharges
- bad smell in basement parking space

Room Tip: Definitely go for the ones with sea views.

I have to say that I prefer their restaurant service much more than their room and facility. Warm, lovely and authentic staff in the restaurant. They tell you about the city, recommend you the right food and drink, cute smile, all makes you feel like home. They offered me a shawl after they asked me if I felt cold. So sweet and thoughtful. The sea view room is quite small even without bath. The view is beautiful in front of Gu Lang Yu island. However, worth to try!
